About this item

In a novel based on a true case, German American Will Bergfeld, an outspoken advocate of workers' and farmer's rights in Texas, becomes a victim of anti-German sentiment during World War I when he is put on trial for treason.

From best-selling author Janice Woods Windle comes another compelling historical novel, this time based on the life of Windle's own grandfather. The protagonist is Will Bergfeld, a brash young man of German descent who is accused of treason and stands trial for his life in 1917, in the midst of the anti-German sentiment that ran rampant in this country during World War I.

Accused of plotting to assassinate President Wilson, the outspoken Will becomes the scapegoat in a vicious government witch-hunt, spurred on by the same fear and misplaced patriotism that would liner give rise to the Japanese internment camps of World War II and the McCarthy trials. The story of Will's trial is largely told through the eyes of the women who love him: his wife Virginia, his mother-in-law Bettie King, and his sister Louise. (Readers of Windle's previous novels will recognize a few of these beloved characters.) Also in the mix are Anna Bennett, the lonely woman Will once rejected whose anger threatens to send him to his death, and Tom Grimes, the brooding Texas ranger whose conscience may eventually save Will's life.

Windle obtained 3,000 pages of the original 1917 trial transcripts, and has woven them into her novel to create a courtroom drama full of false testimony, evidence tampering, and governmental wrongdoing -- made all the more remarkable since it is based on fact.
